The Art House Creative Cafe – The Vegan & Veggie specialists

The Art House Café has decided to specialise in vegan and vegetarian dishes.  This is about offering delicious, fresh healthy vegan and vegetarian dishes without any compromise on taste. If we can make the dish vegan and it tastes as good as the same vegetarian option, then we will and the same for gluten. We won’t be offering any fake meat products but we will still have a limited meat selection you can add to your meal if you prefer. If anything, the past year has taught us that health is wealth and we look forward to you joining us and sampling our vegan and vegetarian menu!
